SAN ANTONIO – UTSA making its second-consecutive appearance in the H-E-B Tournament of Champions this weekend as it travels down to Corpus Christi to participate in the event's 59th edition.
The Roadrunners (2-4) will open tournament action against Oral Roberts on Thursday at noon with its Thursday night to be determined depending on the results of the opening round. The H-E-B Tournament of Champions will be played at the Thomas J. Henry Tennis Center which features 12 courts as eight teams will compete for the tournament crown.
UTSA enters this weekend's competition coming off of a weekend where it split a pair of duals in the Dallas area. The Roadrunners defeated UT Arlington, 4-3, on Saturday, Feb. 11 and fell to SMU, 1-4, on Sunday, Fe. 12.
Senior Sebastian Rodriguez owns the best singles record through six duals, as he's 3-3. The duo pair of Garrett Skelly and Jackson Ross is 2-1 to lead the doubles groups.
UTSA's doubles pair of Rodriguez and Alan Magadan remain in the top ten of the ITA national rankings as the duo was recently announced as the eighth-best tandem in the country following the Feb. 8 update.
